Outdoor Gas Fireplace - The Pros And Cons

There is no denying the beauty and warmth a fireplace brings to any home, but there is something even more special about an outdoor fireplace. And for many families, an outdoor gas fireplace is the perfect option. Here is a look at the pros and cons of these fireplaces to help you decide if it is right for you.

It's hard to think of a more romantic idea than sitting outside on a crisp fall evening have dinner with your wife next to a warm fire. The weather is cool, but not cold, and the beauty of seeing flames dancing in the moonlight is hard to describe.

The outdoor gas fireplace offers several advantages over a wood burning fireplace. There is no need to have wood around. No heavy logs or storage issues. The gas fireplace lights easily and provides an immediate fire.

There is also a dramatically reduced risk of a house fire with these units. You have no hot embers popping and coming out onto the ground. This may not sound important, but fireplaces are a major cause of house fires here in the United States.

An outdoor gas fireplace does not put out the smoke and smells that a wood burning one does. This can be seen as a pro or a con depending on your tastes.

One of the drawbacks with gas is the fact you won't get the flames like you do with wood. In most cases you will not experience the crackling sounds, but some fireplaces do provide for that option.

Another drawback can be the cost. Gas can get expensive depending on how much you use your outdoor fireplace when compared to wood.

The bottom line?

I believe the outdoor gas fireplace is the better option to go with. I lights quick, burns efficiently, is safer, and there is no mess to have to clean up later. They are simple to use and provide for many romantic evenings around your home.
